WTF? moment: not the Wienermobile, but the fire truck hitting the bridge.

It's actually very easy to explain.

BFD: "OUTTA DA WAY!"

Bridge: "I have 11 feet of clearance."

BFD: *BRAAAAAAAAA* *HONK HONK* "Outta da way! Fire truck! 11 feet 6 inches!"

Bridge: "I still only have 11 feet of clearance, sorry."

BFD: "OUTTA...well...how about some concessions?"

Bridge: "Err...."

BFD: "BRIDGES ARE ANTI-UNION!"

Bridge: "............."

BFD: "BRIDGES ARE GOING TO KILL YOU ALL, CITIZENS, IN FIREBALLS OF DEATH!"

*SMASH*

BFD: "Whoa, check out the overtime on this. Sweet."

State police: "Did someone say overtime?"
